Nicci Sevier-Vuyk is an American artist known for her colorful, realistic acrylic paintings of iconic objects in American culture. Her work is fueled by her interest in the conflict between appearance, its meaning in culture, and substance. The stereotypes of beauty and playful sense of irony are main themes in her paintings. Nicci has painted throughout her life and after a career as a pediatric nurse practitioner, she began her art practice full-time. She has attended The Glassell School of Art in Houston, but is, for the most part, a self-taught artist. Nicci has had two solo exhibitions and has been included in many juried exhibitions. She has twice been featured on The Jealous Curator’s blog. Born in northern California, Nicci creates her work and has made her home in Southborough, Massachusetts.
The candy series of paintings by Nicci are certainly little stacks of fun and they might also be small comments on our society’s stereotypes of beauty and appearance… These acrylic paintings all have the same background colors and look amazing when hung together. All pieces are ready to hang and come with hardware for installation. New pieces are always being added to this series, so just ask if you have a request!
